out like medicare is for a single payer system. i find the whole idea laughable especially after we've been through the past few months with just a single obama care, the federal website, totally inept. the president himself said in the press conference thursday, geez, this health insurance thing is complicated. i mean, could you imagine going to a startup called amazon and sent out a note, sorry for the problems. retail is complicated. the idea of government controlling health insurance, it would surely send us back into the depression. >> jim, you don't necessarily agree, getting to single payer is not necessarily a bad thing according to you. >> no, brenda, it's not but as to the folks who are living or think they're living in an episode of "the x files" that was not the plan all along. i mean, there couldn't be more space in between obama care and the single payer health care system. look, we have single payer health care already in this country, it's called medicare. and guess what? medicare has a higher approval rating than all private health insurance. >> well tracy, what abo
with your argument for him as conservatives? >> sure. so the idea of medicare had been around, and, you know, it was kennedy proposed it. and he did it framed in very, in very conservative language, and i'll find that for ya. it was funny, he also -- this connects to the welfare point where, um, where he said, he proposed this medicare plan as very modest proposal, cut to meet absolutely essential needs. and with sufficient deductible requirements to discourage any malingering or unnecessary overcrowding of our hospitals. this program is not be a program of socialized medicine, it's prepayment of health costs with absolute freedom of choice guaranteed. every person will choose his own doctor and hospital. the program's a sound one and entirely in accordance with the traditional american system of placing responsibility on the employee and the employer rath or than on the general taxpayers to help finance health costs. so even as proposing this big government program, he's aware with this language about malingering about the risks of perverse sniffs. and i think -- incentives. and i think, yo

't want the government fooling with my medicare. do they know johnson put that federal program? you remember some of the rhetoric. roosevelt said nothing to fear but fear itself and kennedy said ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. reagan said it's mourning in america and the pride is that. we remember these inspirational talks. for the moment kennedy and reagan are the ones who fill that bill. it will be interesting to see what evolves over the next 50 years. i am very selfish. i say i wish it would could come back in a couple hundred years and see what has happened in the country but my grandiosity does not extend that far.

detached in that sense, too. we're going to have medicare and have demonstration programs, but i think it would have been acutely aware, for instance 0, the political dangers of a great society program with big city mayors at odds with community based organizations, fighting for money. kennedys were from boston. they understood the black-white conflict in terms of white working class and schools. johnson saw it as the north and the south. so i think you would -- kennedy just didn't talk that way. i can't imagine him calling for a war on poverty. because he had a great degree of skepticism about the power of government, whether it was military or domestic. he would have had programs, but smaller, more modest, and it would have been very important for kennedy to make sure that this wasn't seen as a racial program. shortly before he left for dallas, the one political meeting he had, he was talking about poverty, and the record of the census bureau, said this is all real. i wouldn't do that, mr. president. you got all the poor votes. you need suburban votes, salt lake hands with cops. kenn

[booing] rush limbaugh is not an applause line here in new hampshire, i see. but the real and serious question we have to ask one another, the question we have to ask one another as americans is this. how much less do we believe would be good for our country? how much less education would make our children smarter? how much less opportunity will allow the next generation to succeed? how many hungry american children can we no longer afford to feed? you know, on veterans day just last week, i had occasion to deal with some of our nations finest at the world war ii memorial at our nations capitol. i was very humbled to be in the presence of four recipients of the congressional medal of honor

and i think he would have gotten the big tax cut, the federal aid to education, the medicare and the civil rights bills passed. that would have put him in the lead with the most progressive 20th century presidential reformers alongside t.r. and wilson and even compared somewhat to fdr but i don't think he would have pushed beyond that. i think he would have pushed toward dÉtente. i think we would have seen dÉtente earlier with kennedy then we did with richard nixon because that cuban missile crisis was so sobering and it was so khrushchev and they make the nuclear test ban treaty which eliminated the pollution and radiation in the atmosphere and i think kennedy saw this as an opening towards a push with the soviets and he made the ruling and famous american speech in june of 63 in which he said we should rethink, rethink our relationship with the soviet union. mainly the russian people and he praised the russian people as a great evil. he was looking toward i think some kind of accommodation, a movement away from the dangers of a nuclear war. and of course vietnam. he was u
